I sure never noticed a heck of a lot of torque in the Me-262 or B-1.


Also I am glad the P-38 is not a super plane. It wasn't in real life. It is ridiculous to think it could dogfight like a single engine plane except maybe in boom and zoom somewhat. It should be owned by german fighters, as the spit mk5 should be owned by the 190a4, and 109F.


Sure, Bong shot down a lot of zeroes with it. But you can shoot down a lot of zeroes with anything if you use his or Chennault's tactics.

Jumo, maybe you should learn more about the P-38, or fighter tactics, or just plain stuff. The P-38 was a remarkable plane, and was many things to both foes and allies alike. The top allied aces of the Pacific flew P-38s and had great success. And to think that all Bong or McGuire or MacDonald or Johnson or Robbins or Westbrook or Lynch (all P-38 pilots with 20 victories or more) shot down were Zeros, that Zeroes were the only things that flew for the axis in the PTO, well, thats a big mistake.

your point? The Hurricanes decimated the german 109's compared to the Spit's in the battle of brittain.. But the spit is by far the superior aircraft..

The P-38 is an excellent warrior .. I've already bagged several kills in it.. You just have to fly it as it was meant to be flown .. While it may not be 100% perfect i think the claims of it being 'all wrong' are severely exaggerated..

In any air conflict winning is 50% situation, 20% pilot skills, 20# tactics and 10% aircraft :P

Agreed. I don't know why we can't just enjoy the sim.
